Why Rivet?

Riveting provides a permanent connection between two components. The rivet is used as a joint within a bored hole that is made first. It is then formed on one or both ends depending upon the overall function.

There are different kinds of rivets and riveted joints that can be made. Some of the most common materials for the rivets include steel, aluminum, brass, and copper. Each of the types of rivets have their own benefits, including:

  • Button head: Ideal for fixed and closed joints and have a strong clamping effect
  • Countersunk head: Ideal for when surface cannot be uneven due to rivet
  • Oval head countersunk: Used when the surface is rough and there are no demands for an even surface
  • Boiler construction: Similar to a button head rivet, only using a conical shank. Ideal for when bore holes are not quite accurate
  • Explosive: Used when component is accessible from one sight only. Explosive charge widens the rivet shank

Understanding the type of rivet you want to make will make it easier to ensure you purchase riveting tools that can do what you want to do so that timely repairs can be made.

The Importance Of Light Accessories For Your Golf Cart


Did you know most cities require you to have functioning headlights and taillights to drive a golf cart, even on golf cart paths? The last thing you want to do is be fined for not being compliant with the rules, plus it can be dangerous driving without them. At Global Parts Inc., we can help keep you on the road with quality lighting accessories for your golf cart.

Headlights and Taillights

It is important that you have working headlights at all times. Some golf carts may use different designs for their headlights, so you’ll want to make sure you find the right bulb: one that is going to fit and provide you with the crystal projection needed to light your way.

In addition making sure you have working bulbs in your head and taillights, there are various other problems that you might encounter. Your headlights and taillights are going to use approximately 10 amps of current at 12 volts. If you have various other electronics on board, those are going to use amps as well. You might find that your battery will die faster if you have multiple sources taking up energy. A voltage reducer can be a great investment to ensure that all of your light accessories last longer. That way you can go longer without having to charge your golf cart.

Using a Voltage Reducer Can Make Lights Last Longer

LED Light Kits

There are various LED light packages that you might want to consider as well. This will incorporate all of the lights that you need, ranging from headlights to brake lights to backup lights and turn lights. You can also find various amber lights and marker lights that you might want to install to help people know you are there. Golf carts can easily blend into the surroundings at night, and if your focus is on being seen, there are light kits that can ensure you are highly visible regardless of how dark it is.

Before buying and installing lights, check with the city to determine what lights you need. If your golf cart doesn’t have the specific lights that you require, there are plenty of light kits to help you install so that you meet all requirements.
